Transferrin Saturation Calculation

Transferrin Saturation (TSAT) is a medical laboratory value. It is the percent of transferrin that has iron bound to it. It is the ratio of serum iron (SE) and total iron-binding capacity, multiplied by 100. Transferrin Serum Iron Saturation calculator given here to determine the TSAT value based on the SE and total iron binding capacity. TSAT, iron-binding capacity, and saturation can be interchanged where iron-binding capacity shows a patient's iron status.

Formulas Used:

TS = (Serum Iron / Total Iron Binding Capacity) x 100%
Normal reference ranges are :
Serum iron: 60-170 mcg/dl TIBC: 240-450 mcg/dl Transferrin saturation: 20-50% mcg/dl = micrograms per deciliter.
Transferrin saturation indicates iron deficiency if it is less than 20% and indicates iron overload, if it is greater than 50%. The reference range of Transferrin Serum Iron Saturation varies by age where, for adults ranges from 20%-50% and for children it is greater than 16%.
